The best flower to grow in spring: Tulips

It has been raining quite a bit and although the rain is inconvenient, it is good for the plants. Spring time is one of my favorite times because flowers start to bloom and trees get their vibrant green color back. I love driving around the neighborhood and seeing homes that were once covered with snow covered with vibrant flowers and green grass. They say that the earth smiles with flowers and I totally agree.

Today we are talking about one of the prettiest flowers to grow in your yard, Tulips. With us being home most of the time these days, why not spend some time gardening. 

Tulips are great option to grow in your yard. They are usually the first flowers you see in the spring and are one of the most popular flowers in the world along with roses. They usually start growing in the end of March and are very beautiful. If you want to grow Tulips I suggest planting them in an area that gets some sun but not too sunny as they do not like too much heat. Make sure the soil is very fertile and well drained. Tulips do not need too much moisture so you do not need to water them every day. 

My mother, who also loves flowers, shared some of the beautiful tulips in her garden. I was pretty amazed by the different varieties of tulips that are growing in the garden including some unique ones. First is the red tulip with a black and yellow center that I have never seen before. It is said that in ancient Persia, to give a red tulip was to declare your love. The black center of the red tulip was said to represent the lover’s heart, burned to a coal by love’s passion. Pretty interesting, right!
